Jesus is the one who shows mercy, not to the proud, not to the angry, not to those who are satisfied. But He shows mercy to the thirsty. He knows what you need and at the font of your baptism He made a promise deeper than any marriage vow. A vow that continues so that death may not even part you from Him.
When you blame others or make excuses for your sins of thoughts, words or deeds, you are blaming God. This is why Jesus’ temptation is so wonderful. Jesus doesn’t deserve to be led out to the wilderness and to be deprived of food but he does it anyway because the Holy Spirit led him out there to succeed where we have failed.
